The road to Stupino crosses the flooded meadows that used to be a lake. Road is not paved, so at the end of winter we were not sure if we were going to reach the homestead or not. Eventually we managed to do it. The farmstead is quite small, and the mill is visible from afar.

The mill was quite well preserved by the standards of Voronezh region. Being an ordinary mill, similar to all Chernozem region mills, it has one interesting detail: a brakewheel with two rows of small cams. This could also be found in another mill in Manychskoe. Apparently, because the construction is fragile, the wheel is reinforced with iron rods.

What's more, the windshaft has an interesting construction. It is an iron ring, from the side of the sails the shaft is quadrangular, and from the side of the camwheel it is octagonal. Another interesting detail is there has remained a stonecrane on the wall. Usually the stonecrane is the first thing that is torn off and burned when someone decides to make a bonfire in the mill... The remains of the brake can also be seen on the second floor. The mill has also preserved the sail, even with transverse notches, that can help to understand what the inclination of the sail was. The only question is who is going to do it?

here you can leave your review. And here you can read about the homestead itself, as there are interesting things there too.
